Math Question

Nobody is ever going to refer to Donald Trump as "the great communicator". His appeal is in the hope that he will stop the machine in DC that continually drags America down. Interest rates are at 0. Economic growth is at 0. Job growth is stagnant and two weeks ago the Obama Administration predicted that if you are making less than $25/hr, you're going to be replaced by a machine within 20 years. Trump won't fix the march of mechanization as low-skilled workers are pricing themselves out of the workplace. A national $15/hr minimum wage will hasten it if Bernie is elected.

But I digress.
Donald Trump answers the question: What is 2+2? 
"I have to say a lot of people have been asking this question. No, really. A lot of people come up to me and they ask me. They say, 'What's 2+2'? And I tell them look, we know what 2+2 is. We've had almost eight years of the worst kind of math you can imagine. Oh my God, I can't believe it. Addition and subtraction of the 1s the 2s and the 3s. It's terrible. It's just terrible. Look, if you want to know what 2+2 is, do you want to know what 2+2 is? I'll tell you. First of all the number 2, by the way, I love the number 2. It's probably my favorite number, no it is my favorite number. You know what, it's probably more like the number two but with a lot of zeros behind it. A lot. If I'm being honest, I mean, if I'm being honest. I like a lot of zeros. Except for Marco Rubio, now he's a zero that I don't like. Though, I probably shouldn't say that. He's a nice guy but he's like, '10101000101,' on and on, like that. He's like a computer! You know what I mean? He's like a computer. I don't know. I mean, you know. So, we have all these numbers, and we can add them and subtract them and add them. TIMES them even. Did you know that? We can times them OR divide them, they don't tell you that, and I'll tell you, no one is better at the order of operations than me. You wouldn't believe it. So, we're gonna be the best on 2+2, believe me."

  1. Very funny, LL. I've finally figured out why I like Trump. He sounds just like me - at least in my head. My brain operates like a bunch of steroid infused squirrels dancing the jitterbug, so Trump usually makes perfect sense to me.

    1. I like surf and turf! You're on. Now are you coming to SoCal or am I coming to Northern Idaho?

      Did you notice that Carly Fiorina joined the Cruz campaign (possible VP?) I strongly doubt that Cruz would lash himself to the failed Rubio.

  4. 2 is his favorite number? Any number, or numbers, that keeps me in the black is my favorite number. And +1 on the surf and turf.
